The actor told Zee News, “It’s safe to say that things feel more than a little surreal at the moment. Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined a dystopia like this would be our everyday reality.”
He added, “Today after being retested for Covid19, I am happy to say that I have tested negative.”
Further sharing about being a Coronavirus patient, he said, “We all held on to our optimism and if there’s one take away I have from this, is that there’s nothing to fear but fear itself. Corona felt like a looming, distant and scary Phantom that we took every precaution to avoid and even then it found a way to enter what we thought was a completely sanitised space. Yet, here we are, dealing with it and getting on with our lives. It’s unfair to test people’s loyalty when your world feels like it’s caving in on you. It’s such a strange time that a seasonal sneeze or cough feels like something more sinister.”
Kiran is best-known for starring in TV shows like Zindagi, Ghutan, Sahil, Manzil, Grihasti, Katha Sagar, Aur Phir ek Din, Papa, Miilee and Chhajje Chajje Ka Pyar, to name a few. In terms of films, he has featured in Brothers, Bobby Jasoos, LOC: Kargil, Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani, Kyo Kii… Main Jhuth Nahin Bolta, Dhadkan and English Babu Desi Mem, among many others.
